Terry Gilliam Kicks Ass

In a recent article, Terry Gilliam, former member of Monty Python and famous film director, talks a little about the movie industry. It is mentioned about how frustrated he gets with film executives, and how they screw around with productions. He goes on to say that, with they way they penny-pinch his films into oblivion, he finds it hard to sympathise with their anguished bleatings over how pirating of movies is driving them to the poor house.
"It's hard for me to worry about the studios losing money. I'm not very sympathetic to their money problems, because they certainly haven't been sympathetic to mine. When you look at one of their accounting sheets you realise you're never going to see a penny, so if someone wants to rip them off that's fine with me. If you're going to pirate, though, make sure the quality's good. Have some respect for what you're pirating!"
Gilliam kicks so much ass. He's already one of my favourite directors, and that comment just ices the cake.

Fuckin' classic.
